# Sulphur cross links are introduced in natural rubber.State the incorrect reason of this statement .

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;\text{Better tensile strength}\\(b)\; \text{Better elasicity}\\(c)\;\text{Better malleability}\\(d)\;\text{Better resistance to abrasion} \end{array}$

When natural rubber is heated with 3-5% sulphur,it becomes non-stricky and more elastic.This process is called vulcanisation,which gives better tensile strength,elasticity and resistance to abrasion than natural rubber.This is due to sulphur cross links between polymer chains.
Hence (c) is the correct answer.
